Major Change for Out-of-State OHV Riders in AZPHOENIX - Out-of-stateresidents wishing to legally ride their off-highway vehicle and support OHVtrail maintenance, education and law enforcement efforts in Arizona are required to purchase anonresident OHV decal beginning as of September 1, 2019.The newdecal was supported and pushed by the OHV riding community during the 2019legislative session and was signed into law by Gov. Doug Ducey. The lawrequires nonresident OHV owners to purchase a decal to operate the machineswithin the state. All OHVsdesigned by the manufacturer primarily for use over unimproved terrain and thatweigh 2,500 pounds or less are required by law to display a valid OHV decal tooperate on public and state trust lands. Please note: This includes"street legal" OHVs that meet these two requirements.Beforethe law was passed, nonresident OHV owners could ride their machines within thestate for up to 30 days only if their state had a similar in-state residentdecal program. There is no longer a grace period allowing nonresidents tooperate without an Arizonadecal and owners are now required to purchase a decal before operating theirmachines within the state. Thosecaught riding without a current decal can be fined.Nonresident OHVdecals cost $25 (plus a processing fee) and are good for one year from thepurchase date. The nonresident OHV decal canonly be purchased online through an Arizona Game and Fish Department portalaccount, which can be created at azgfd.govby clicking "My Account."
